Qaidi Numbar 100 – Bharati Zindaan key Shab-o-roz (Urdu)
On 6 February 2003, Anjum Zamarud Habib, a woman political activist from Kashmir, was arrested in Delhi and jailed under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA). Her crime? Being in the wrong place at the wrong time. In this passionate and moving account of her days in Tihar jail, she describes the shock and bewilderment of arrest, the pain of realizing that there is no escape for not days, not weeks, but years, the desperation for contact with the outside world and the sense of deep betrayal at being abandoned by her political comrades. Her story is both a searing indictment of draconian state policies and expedient political practices, and a moving account of one woman’s extraordinary life.
